So, a couple of weeks ago I really got my Control Journal under, well, control!
Nothing fancy, just an old binder we had laying around that I made a cover for.
My big focus was routines. Before, I had some “Room Routines” that I used to help me focus when a room was too overwhelming.
I would set the timer for however many minutes, and use the list to keep me going. That way even if I didn’t finish, I could say some part of the room was done!
When I revamped some things a few weeks ago, I included a Morning Routine, After Lunch Routine, After School Routine, and an Evening Routine. (The After Lunch and After School ones were short, 2 and 4 items, but very helpful!)
They did help… Even if I didn’t do them when I was “supposed” to, they would help me focus when I did get down to business! That being said, now summer is coming and hubbie is home more (as are the girls) so I’m going to have to revamp them AGAIN to fit into our new “normal”!
That’s the meat of it. I do have some other pages that I’m playing around with, and I look forward to sharing more as I get this down pat. I found a lot of free pages on websites that I’m hoping to integrate. While I realize this will always be a work in progress, I do hope that sometime soon I’ll be it utilizing regularly.
How about you? Do you have a Control Journal of any type? Any recommendations/tips/links/pictures?
